Gorgeous stocks on a splendid revolver.

Do you ever shoot these pristine beauties, or do they pull permanent safe duty?

Pete,
Beautiful! I spent 9 years of my earlier days working in a lumber mill and i have a great appreciation for beautiful wood grain. Those stocks are some primo eye candy.

Pete, beautiful set of grips. Like I've mentioned before, I live about 10 miles from John's work shop. All the wood he has available is beautifully grained. When I visited his shop and saw the material he works with and the effort he puts into every set of grips, they're worth every cent he charges. If you want the best beautiful quality, John Culina is the man to turn to.

Beautiful revolver and wood, at least on the right hand stock, we never got to see the other one. :-( :-)

Have a blessed day,

Leon

Very nice, I have a 1968 Model 17-3 as well (as per letter) but it is marked “17-2.”
